Life can be a struggle at times and anxiety and depression can be exhausting, putting on that brave face can be hard to maintain when inside you feel like your world is falling apart. Anxiety can be debilitating and can hold you back in both careers and relationships. I can offer strategies and tools to help you manage your anxiety and panic attacks before exploring the underlying causes that of that anxiety. I offer an opportunity for us to share the your world and to find a way forward even if at this moment in time that looks unattainable.
I have a sincere belief in counselling and the benefits gained in connecting with your true self, this gives you a sense of freedom to choose when you want to present the brave face or present who you truly are.
As a highly experienced, professional Counsellor/Psychotherapist of 20 years I offer a respectful and non-judgmental service in a safe environment allowing us to explore, anxieties and fears that hold us back. I will facilitate your ability to gain clarity and understanding or your behaviours and reactions. This in turn leads to a growth in awareness of how this impacts on your relationships and at the same time gaining a greater sense of your personal identity that often gets lost in this busy frantic world. Your sense of confidence grows, your ability to make more informed choices develops and your self-esteem will be enhanced.
Therapy offers a little stillness in a chaotic world offering the opportunity to reflect, heal, gain understanding of life patterns this understanding leads to personal change and growth. It increases motivation and gives a sense of well-being.
My approach is based on honesty and integrity whilst working at your pace. I provide a confidential and supportive therapeutic space based on safety and trust. I work from relaxing therapy rooms and for those of you who feel like exploring whilst walking I also offer walking therapy. The advantages and the healing nature of being out doors are well documented and can offer a different dimension to the work. I also offer specific trauma related therapy services recognised by NICE called EMDR, this treats trauma related anxiety and PTSD.
I am a Senior accredited member of the BACP and work with the Ethical Framework for the Counselling and Psychotherapy Professions.

- Anxiety, panic attacks and depression
- Work Stress & Burn Out

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
